Track Name: The same blanket
You've been lying by my side
we've been sharing the same blanket
now your plane is taking off
as i pray for your eyes to see

I'm down here, i'm almost crying
while i drive home on the freeway
just one month is not much time
i can wait for my eyes to see

But you got words
that could sail upon the water
take the time you spent with boys
in other lives
and the wounds you felt
then just look the other way

Now let time just pass us by
don't you worry about the distance
we could be downcast sometimes
as we pray for our hands to enlace

You've been lying by my side
we've been sharing the same blanket
now your plane is touching land
as i pray for our eyes to meet
Track Name: 27 and counting
this little city saw us young
while playing football in the park
and getting fines for parking motorbikes on grass fields
when afternoons were truly droll
while drinking beer and smoking pot
in the old rope-yard with grim dogs barking away
we used to put together shitty bands
to play some shitty songs
singing about dirty jokes and violent moshpits
and if you'd tell me "one day we will play
our songs so far from home"
guess what? i wouldn't laugh at you again

This little city saw us lonely and burning
losers with nice thoughts and pretty faces
perfect friends but awful lovers
“Something to write home about”
and other records that we used to love
Were our only bedroom company
and "summer wind was always our song"
was always our song as we thought
we should get a girl or something
and if you'd tell me "one day we will aim
and find the perfect one"
guess what? i wouldn't laugh at you again

You got me older

So years go by and people change
but some of them they stay the same
and we're the same boys who take roots in smoking areas
so you can find us anytime
with the same drink in the same bar
at the same hour, with the same people at the table
we've been drunk and we've been happy
we've been drunk and we've been sad
we've been drunk and we've been miserable on sundays
and if you'd tell me "one day we will slog
to drink the weekend off"
guess what? i wouldn't laugh at you again

And now we're older but not bolder
we look back but not in anger
we still live the same things and the same feelings
some of us will marry soon and some of us will never will
some of us will get divorced pretty early
some of us have pushed their lives abroad
but we still keep in touch
some of us will never leave these doleful places
and if you'd tell me "one day we'll grow up
like everyone else does"
guess what? i wouldn't laugh at you again

You got me older
you got us older
